Abstract

Philo's descriptions of the outburst of violence in Alexandria in 38 suggest that he was trying to distract attention away from some crime against Rome committed by the local Judeans. Careful analysis of the chronology suggests that this crime was a dramatic violation of the Alexandrian funerary celebrations for Drusilla, the sister of the Roman emperor Gaius. The edict of Flaccus and subsequent violence against the Judeans was a punitive response to this crime. The entire sequence of events was fully in harmony with normal Roman legal and administrative policies.
